Whilst in a drunken stupor the two old friends came to the conclusion that there just weren't enough real rock bands in the world and set out to start the loudest, most obnoxious bunch of young hard rockers that the world had ever seen. Jason knew of a rock solid drummer from school and a shit hot guitarist in his neighbourhood - so Gavin Pegg and Jason Williams joined respectively.
The search for a bass player ended some months later when one of Trevs old band buddies Tim Taylor made himself available for a show in Wollongong.
That was in June 1998.
Up until then Gavs brother Adam had filled in temporarily. With a line up together, a few original songs written and some bourbon fuelled passion, the lads set about carving a mark that would take them from Newcastle to Wollongong and almost everywhere in between.
ACETONE began it's campaign locally playing at various hotels, bars, nightclubs, leagues clubs, strip clubs and other venues of a wonderfully wholesome nature. Confident they could mix it up with the big boys, the lads then turned to Sydney to start playing their brand of old fashioned Aussie rock to bigger audiences. This lead on to ACETONE entering and winning the Hornsby Inn 'Unleash The Millennium' battle of the bands in September 2000.
With this victory, confidence soared, and the fellas supported The Screaming Jets to 1400 pissed rock fans (and a few good looking' chicks too) at their hometown Mingara Recreational Club on the sunny Central Coast.
Since then ACETONE has suffered drastic line up changes but they are still constantly blowing audiences away with the new sound.
